Sometimes when I begin to forget the pain we go through and the knowledge that some people have of IBS---I read this article and I am always impressed. It was an interview with Dr.Marvin Schuster, MD that worked at Johns Hopkins for 39 years and recently retired ---a Real Pioneer in IBS treatment. For us with IBS it is worth taking the time to read: http://www.jhu.edu/~jhumag/0497web/gastro1.html Take Care---HdogPS- The article is "Bowels in an Uproar" by Melissa Hendricks, Johns Hopkins Mag. April,1997. [This message has been edited by Hdog (edited 05-14-2001).]

Thank you for posting the article. I live in Milwaukee, so the phone number for more information may be exactly what I need! It also might help me find a face-to-face support group. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate everyone's help on this BB, but sometimes, I'd just love to sit down with someone and talk about what I'm going through without them rolling their eyes like I'm nuts!Carrie

So what?Unless you get IBS, say in the last few months, everybody that is a long time IBS sufferer knows that (21 years of trouble). Bubble trigger the pain, yes i know. We are a much lower pressure sensitive than other, we know that. Stress increase the trouble, we know that (for any trouble anyway)....etc.For the pressure it's not really totally true. It's the quantity of air in the balloon that is of importance. If The wall of your colon is not strong ( because of years of suffering) then with the same pressure it get more distended. Because of that, the neuron cells will also be pulled apart more than normal people for the same pressure. Then you feel the pain. This could explain why we are so sensitive (i did not invent, i read it)...but what causes this at the beginning. No one knows. The problem is: could this be reversible?---------------------------------------------------------------------I'm not M.D. What is said is only the opinion of the writer---------------------------------------------------------------------.

Thanks for posting this Hdog -- I learnt something new -- apple juice is high in gluten and drs suggest staying away from it. I had a lot of apple juice y'day and am not doing so good today. Will have to look out for a pattern here!S.
